Here is an exclusive extract from Carl Frampton’s interview in the Boxing News Annual:
Scott Quigg has suggested that you’re contractually obliged to give him a rematch. Is that true?
He’s talking out of his arse. There was nothing in the contract that said there has to be a rematch. I think there was something about if the public demanded a rematch then there could be one, but it’d have to be in Belfast. But that’s as far as it goes. There was a rematch clause in the Santa Cruz contract, but not in the Quigg contract. In the foreseeable future, I can’t see a rematch with Quigg happening, because I don’t think it’s a fight that people would particularly want to see again. It was a boring fight, and I did what I had to do to win. I thought that our styles were going to gel a bit better, but he didn’t want to fight, so I can’t do anything about that. Who wants to see a rematch, apart from Quigg and [his trainer] Joe Gallagher? No one, really.
